they're certainly greek if you make them out of lamb. i like to add a healthy amount of oregano to my lamb balls (boy that just doesn't sound right.. :D ).

deb, a good idea with the feta is to make the lamb balls around a chunk of feta, then brown in evoo, and bake at 400 for 10 minutes to make sure they're cooked thru and the feta melts.

My friend's wife makes greek meatballs with lamb, but I have trouble eating them because they call it "lamb's balls."

LOL.. Lamb balls

We've always called them that too.

You can flatten the balls out and make patties if you'd rather.

The lemon sauce sounds good too!

You guys are great.
